USgamer's RPG Podcast Ponders the Final Fantasy VII Remake's Battle System, Ni No Kuni 2, and Bloodborne DLC

Axe of the Blood God takes an in-depth look at Bloodborne's DLC while recapping the news from PSX.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the show notes for previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), special guest John Learned joins Bob and I to discuss Bloodborne: The Old Hunters, the revelations that Final Fantasy VII will have a totally new battle system (and will be episodic!), and the newly-announced Ni No Kuni sequel.

I've already said my piece about the Final Fantasy VII Remake's battle system - I'm fine with it. I'm a little sad it won't be turn-based, but there's nothing wrong with going in a new direction. As for it being episodic... well... we see. Bob and John get into a really good discussion about The Old Hunters around the 30 minute mark while delving deep into Bloodborne's overall appeal. Apologies for the audio quality in this one, by the way. Recording over Skype is unfortunately an imperfect process.

Show Description

This past weekend brought with it a ton of RPG news, and Bob and Kat are here to review it alongside special guest John Learned. What does the gang think about Final Fantasy VII going episodic?
